Travel Plans, Shopping Finds & Restaurant Deals

Happy almost weekend! Luckily this week went by pretty quickly so no complaints here. I also don't have any big plans for the weekend so I'm looking forward to some "me" time and hanging out with K for our usual Friday dinner/movie/drinks night. Other than that...

Our tickets have been purchased to see the Cubs play in September at the Wrigley Field. Neither K nor myself have been to Chicago and I thought it would be a great birthday gift for K to get the full experience while we're in Chi town. I'm not a huge sports fanatic but I'm married to one so I try to at least be a sport and definitely wouldn't mind checking out one of the most iconic baseball fields in the country.

And more tickets were purchased to see one of my favorite bands, Slightly Stoopid, in concert next month at Cocoa beach. I just saw them not too long ago in St Pete Beach but tickets were cheap enough and Stephen Marley will also be performing so I really want to see him as well. (As you can tell I love reggae and beach rock type of music).

 Ladies sushi/happy hour date went down on Wednesday evening at our favorite lil spot downtown ~ Shari Sushi Lounge. They have the best sushi happy hour in town with $4.95 rolls and cocktails. You really can't beat that deal! I get so disappointed when I try out new places and have to pay $10+ a roll so Shari has been my spot for about 6 years now.

Some sweet smelling goodies from Bath & Body Works arrived in the mail this week. These lotions and body sprays were on sale for $4 a piece so I thought it was a good time to replenish my stock and get some gifts for upcoming birthdays. I also love their hand soaps for my bathroom sink.

Lastly, you may or may not know but I'm the queen of coupons. Well maybe not but my mom makes fun of me. I'm not an extreme couponer and rarely use them at the grocery store but I am signed up to almost every restaurant's mailing list. These days most restaurants (especially chain restaurants) send out great coupons and freebies via email so it's worth being signed up to save a few dollars. Since we don't eat out all week, I often plan our Friday dinner dates or weekend lunches around these deals.
Just a few examples:

  2. My hubs is a HUGE Yankees fan so for his birthday each year I get him tickets to an away game to watch them play at another stadium and then plan a fun weekend for us there. His birthday is actually next week and this year we are going to Toronto (shhhhhhhh don't write anything about that on my blog - he doesn't know yet, lol). I am dying to see a game in Chicago! I need a full report back! Have a great weekend! The unplanned ones are my favorite!

  4. I always use BBW foaming soaps, preferably in eucalyptus mint.

    I need to buy Cubs tickets, but we'll probably end up doing a same day purchase!

  5. I am a big coupon fan as well - sometimes my friends make fun of me for it, but there's nothing better than saving some extra cash to use for fun purchases later on! Happy Friday :)

  6. You have just convinced me to sign up for some of those coupons!! We don't have too many chain restaurants here - but if we had a bonefish I'd be all over that!! How fun about the Chicago trip - that's a great birthday gift!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. I totally thought baseball was soooo boring but I finally went to my first game about a month ago and I loved it. I think it's mainly because of the yummy food and beer tho LOL

    Have you tried Amura Sushi? It's kind of pricey but I love the atmosphere and their appetizers there!
